ADMINISTRATIVE MANUAL (SGA)
1) Origin / Inception of the Organisation
The Social Guidance Agency (SGA) is the outcome of the dream, planning, and untiring service of the founding director, C. Dozuala and a few like minded friends, who render their Voluntary Service toward the afflicted, neglected and marginalized in the Society with the spirit of love instilled by our Lord Jesus Christ. After their long and unnoticed efforts, it was felt that an organizational body should be established for wider impact and partnership with other functional bodies.
In 1986 the SGA was formed and was registered under the Society Registration Act No. SR 8 0f 1986, becoming a pioneer NGO in the field of social Action in Mizoram. Seeing the zeal and the commitment of the SGA, Grant In aids started to come in from the Central Government of India, and slowly more people and organizations show their interest, enabling its present expansion into many projects and branches.
2) Mission and Vision of the Organisation:
To uplift the afflicted and marginalized in Mizoram and beyond through care- Centres, mobile Unit, and Awareness Campaigns.
